Review quote

"Reflecting the trend toward unification of the two fields of occupational medicine (workplace health) and environmental medicine (which looks broadly at air- and water-born health threats), this single-authored reference is intended for physicians-those who intend to specialize in OEM, those shifting to the field in mid-career, and those practicing occupational medicine who want to rethink their practice in broader terms. It's also intended for health professionals, scholars, and students who want historical background on the two fields and a framework for putting them together." - SciTech Book News "More than an introduction and less than a compendium, this volume offers a very readable description of occupational and environmental medicine. Summing Up: Recommended. Lower-level undergraduates and above; general readers." - Choice "... a three volume set that constitutes convenient one-stop shopping for everything that is important in practice. The set is designed to replace a bookshelf and to be a primary resource used over and over again. Dr. Tee Guidotti single-handedly wrote this three volume, 1,600-page series, a massive achievement in this day and time. The publisher, Praeger, is focused on becoming a major publisher in this field. They are off to a good start with this book. It is an excellent resource and a very good deal for the money. This series is essential reading and has replaced a book shelf in my library." - CSIMS Bulletinshow more
